Dear all,

Does anyone know what the going interpreting rates for half a day and full day are in Portugal at the moment? An agency has approached me and I am not aware of the rates there.

Thank you!

Around €500 for a day's contract on the quality interpreting market, but there are plenty of shady agencies offering €200-300 for unqualified interpreters.
Get in contact with AIIC Portugal for more details.
Hope that helps!

Hi Mar 27, 2011

Hi, im currently still studying languages but I' just wondering how do you get approached by companies? how do they find out about you?

You have to get out there a bit. Of course it's vital that you finish your studies first though, and if you want to interpret you would be well advise to learn how to do it's not just a question of knowing your languages well. UAL in Lisbon has a good Master programme...get in touch with them when you're coming to the end of your undergrad studies. Oh, and learn a slightly different language...the Portuguese market is flooded with En, Es and Fr into Port. German is useful and so is Polish (for EU work).
Good luck!
